Want a gas well in your backyard?

Its happening in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Oil and gas wells are being drilled in urban areas not too far from houses. But there is big money and some people and communities are getting royalty payments. According to a recent article "150-foot drilling rigs are rising over golf courses, churchyards, even tree-lined neighborhoods." Drilling causes "noise, vibrations and odors"." (not to mention environmental concerns) So is it worth it to have your neighborhood tranquility diminished? The article is called "Tapping wells of resentment."
